  1. Loved that
  2. Just to play devils advocate. He has given a shit load of cash for community projects back in Chile, and is absolutely revered where he is from for it. His contribution in this area has been quite widely recognised and I can think of few Leicester players who are doing anything comparible. You might not like him, but in comparison to someone like Vardy, he comes out looking pretty rosy. Hes also world class at football. Easily in the top 3 players in the league. Pathetic tonight though, lost a lot of respect for him for that. But let's keep it in perspective...
  3. On point. Invited them on for way too long. Only their own fault they didn't bury us way earlier in the game. Game was crying out for Gray around 60/70 minutes. Disappointed we were so negative and slow to respond.
  4. What's him being Chilean got to do with it?
  5. We absolutely were playing hoofball. Just don't be drawn into thinking this is a bad thing. Direct football and long balls have been slammed in recent years in favour of tiki taka and possession football etc. It can be boring, but all styles of football can be boring. I'd personally much rather see an incisive long ball counter attacking team than some of the shit possession football served up by the likes of United etc just going side to side for 90 mins. We were direct, we were lumping balls up high, but we needed to be - and it was exhilarating to watch.
  6. Bad day for the injuries alone. A fiercely contested game was the last thing we needed with Vardy playing 90. Cant believe more hasn't been made of the foul on Benny for their equaliser - it's blatant, should have never been a goal.
  7. If just them being the home team was enough to make them do that it wouldn't be so unusual as they play at home about every other game. This is going to be a seriously tough game. We need to hope we are absolutely on point and for a bit of that Leicester magic.
  8. Much more likely is that this season just presented different challenges which he wasn't as great as dealing with.
  9. Read again, I said putting aside all those negatives, as in I'm not commenting on them...
  10. Don't you think it's a little bit simplistic to suggest he just lost his ability at some point between last year and this?
  11. Huh? What part of that don't you think is fair?
  12. Indeed. its possible to be a great manager of a situation when things are going well, and simultaneously not a great manager when things are going badly. Different skill sets. Love the guy, massive respect for what he did, but he couldn't turn the situation around. What he's said tonight doesn't give me much confidence he would have if he had stayed.
  13. The money could have been much better spent. Not sure anyone could disagree with that. Putting aside the question marks over his attitude and ability, he doesn't fit our system. Almost doubling your transfer record fee for someone who will sit on the bench can't be seen as anything other than bad business. Personally I've been pretty disappointed by much of what I've seen from him. If we can recoup what we spent in the summer we should jump at the chance. If it's a question of taking a massive hit in his cost then I then hold on to see if he comes good.
  14. Jesse Lingard is not worth 100k a week Its a ludicrous amount to pay a very average player, can't understand why you would possibly want to use that as a benchmark as to what we would pay our players. Manchester United are also one of the highest earning clubs in the world, their sponsorship deals dwarf ours, the two situations aren't even slightly comparable.
  15. I like Spurs, always have. My uncle was the person who got me into football and he is a Spurs fan. When I moved to Leicester when I was six he told me "You're moving to Leicester, their football team is called Leicester City and they're your team now" and they have been ever since. Since that day we've always had little wagers and such when we were in the same division. Young team, lots of likeable players, lots of homegrown talent, play exciting football. Would much prefer for them to win than the expensively assembled Chelsea. All that aside it would be brilliant if we beat them and that hands Chelsea the title. Can only imagine the meltdown.
